Palace Resorts Preferred DJ

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up - if you're having or thinking of having a Palace Resorts wedding, their preferred DJ is VERY expensive.  Much more than the other DJ's who brides on this site rave about.  I'm using DJ Mannia for $900 for 4 hours and their DJ, J&S Audio Visual is $1500 for the same thing.
Just beware that you should try to get permission to use outside vendors at the very beginning of your booking process.

After doing a lot of research, ALL of their "preferred" vendors are very expensive.  The decor company they wanted me to use is DOUBLE, yes DOUBLE THE PRICE of everyone else!  Beware!

I checked with my WC at Aventura and she said that we have to use their preferred DJ.  So I booked J&S and they have been very accommodating so far.

Your WC is lying to you.  You don't HAVE to use any of their preferred vendors.  If they can get you to use them, they make more money, because they get a kick back.  I had it specifically written into my contract that I could use whoever I wanted.

Well it was written in my contract that they are no outside vendors allowed.  So, apparently things can differ between the palace resorts.

Nope, it's the same for all the Palace Resorts.  Tt was written in my contact that there are no outside vendors allowed too.  You have to request that you contracts states you can use whoever you want.  That's how they take advantage of brides unfortunately.  I personally think Palace Resorts does a TERRIBLE job with their weddings. I've been working with them for 9 months and I don't know how they stay in business.
A few other brides on here gave the huge heads up to get outside vendor clause in the contract or you end up spending a lot more money.  You can obviously use theirs, just trying to help brides who don't want to get ripped off.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
